If you're talking about the wires attached to the BAKE element, normally RED is on the RIGHT and YELLOW is on the LEFT, but it really doesn't matter. Theoretically, this is a resistive heating coil and it will work with the wires connected in either direction. Normally, its fairly easy to determine how these wires reconnect, because the lengths are normally only sufficient enough to connect them one way.

The RED wire connects from the BAKE element to the terminal block, to one side of the BROIL element. The YELLOW wire is connected to one end of the BAKE element and runs to the electronic oven control (EOC) board.

I hope this clarifies this for you.

Oven heats slowly, bake element has been replaced


Yes, it is very possible that when the bake element burned out, it may have shorted out to the case of the oven, and burned up the relay on the control board. If you have a voltmeter (and feel comfortable in doing this), remove the back of the oven, and measure the voltage across the bake elements when you set the oven to some bake temperature. Be careful, you are dealing with 240 volts AC here! IF you don't have any voltage anywhere near 240 V while on bake, then you probably have a bad electronic oven control. If you have just 120 volts, then check your voltage at your power cord or (better) at the junction box at the back of the range. You should have 120 volts from the center (white or green) wire to either the red or black wire; and 240 volts from the red to the black wire. Now IF you have 240 volts across the terminals of the bake element, then you may have gotten the wrong bake element (wrong wattage - lower watts than the original). Maybe you ordered the wrong one, or maybe they put the wrong one in the box.

Hello, welcome to Fixya.

I understand you are replacing your bake element and are uncertain of wire placement, correct ? My first suggestion would be to locate the tech sheet/wiring diagram, or tracing the yellow wire. I suspect the 2 black are "hot" and the yellow (maybe with a green tracer on it?) is ground/earth...though I don't have a diagram either. Let me know what you find and I'll try to help you going forward. Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa today.

Was baking in oven on a baking stone and inside the oven there was a flash and loud pop (what you would expect if you had metal in a microwave). Is this worth the service charge to see if it can be fixed?...


Was the baking stone resting on the element? It sounds like the element has shorted out and it should have tripped the circuit breaker and/or blown a fuse in the unit. Replacing an element is not difficult and is carried out from the inside and the back if the oven. With the power off, locate which element has blown, it will probably be the bottom one and there should be a hole at the site. Remove the back if the unit, remove the wires from the element, remove any screws that may be holding itin place, ease the element out of any clips that retain it and pull it out through the front, Refitting the new element is the reverse of the removal.

The baking element in the oven does not appear to be working


HI.I would test to confirm the actual issue. This easiest test you can do is to turn on the oven and observe the heating element. If it glows red, the element is working. When baking, the broiling element may come on to assist with preheating or to maintain the oven temperature. When set to bake, if the broiler comes on, but the baking element does not, the likely cause is a burned out baking element.When set to broil, the broil element should glow red, but the bake element typically is not used. If the broiler does not glow, it is likely a burned out heating element.


Use This procedure below to confirm the failure.

With a multimeter, use these steps below to physically test for element functions.

1. Unplug the oven or turn off the power at the breaker or fuse box.

2.Follow the heating element back to where it goes through the wall of the oven. Remove the bracket that secures the element in place.

3. Unscrew or unfasten any stand-off supports that secure the element to the oven.

4.Pull the element part way out to expose the oven's wiring connected the element.

5.Label the wires and secure them in place so they do not fall back into the cavity.

6.Disconnect the wires from the element.

7.Using a multimeter set to x1, touch one probe to each of the element contacts. Expect resistance in the range of 20 to 40 ohms. Infinite or kilo-ohm resistance usually indicates a bad element and it should be replaced.

8.If the element tests okay, reconnect the wires, slip them back into the cavity and re-secure the element.

Bottom Baking element not working


dmiller58
If all your connections are solid then your controller is defective. Did you get any faults before changing the element? Does the broil (one at the top of the oven) work?

Baking element


oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.

Bake Element


There should only be two wires that go to the element. It won't matter which wire goes on which terminal. Turn power off to unit before replacing the element. In some cases when the element burns out and breaks in have it will send a surge back to the oven control board and it will need to be replaced also. You will know once the element is replaced if it doesn't heat up.
